The ghost of Neville Chamberlain was interviewed at Westminster today and provided keen insight into one of today's most complex problems: George W Bush Foreign Policy. Neville informed us that he keeps close track on world politics ever since the BBC installed cable in his crypt as he has not much else to do with his time.
When questioned about the United States and its current foreign policy he advised us that he is in total agreement with George W Bush and thinks that this policy will be successful. In a general reverse of his own previous policies of abject appeasement to all, he has come to the conclusion that George's policy of bombing everything in sight with or without cause will succeed. He reluctantly admits that his previous policy was in error.
When questioned about the upcoming Presidential election in the Colonies he was very firm and is close to endorsing Rudy Giuliani for the Presidency. He was adamant in his support and agreed with Rudy's foreign policy advisor Norman Podhoretz that the US should bomb the crap out of Iran immediately, just to show the world who is the boss, and also to make Israel happy.
He dismissed any possible "blowback" from such an event and did not think that Iran's Sunburn Missiles which are located all up and down the coast would be any problem. He was aware that Russia had shipped these to Iran years ago, and although not nuclear tipped, are quite capable of severely damaging one of the two US Aircraft Carriers now in the Persian Gulf. These missiles could easily sink any oil tanker cruising along the 700 mile long Iranian coastline or even one or two which would block the Strait of Hormuz and make the price of crude oil go crazy.
When questioned about the possible "peace-nick" Ron Paul being elected he just laughed and said that his long experience in foreign policy made it abundantly clear that war was the only answer to just about everything.
